Rippling across the equator for nearly 5000km, Indonesia encompasses more than 17,000 islands.
Due to only recent advancements in wetsuits and surf kit technology, this coastline has remained relatively un explored. Today there is a buzzing community of cold water surfers. With out the usual shops and infrastructure found in surf destinations in Europe, the surf spots remain bare and exposed. Arctic swells unsure year-round waves, although December and January are almost unsurfable due to a lack of day-light hours.
The exposed coastline faces north-west and south-east ensuring predominantly offshore winds, but with such a varied coastline it can accommodate multiple options. The biggest, most exciting swells come in the Autumn and Winter months - the ideal adventure for an experienced surfer. The summer months are more beginner friendly. A local surf camp is definitely the best place to stay, with a local surf guide under the same roof.
